movin' over here...
Hey everyone. Welcome to my first blog (technically it's a duplicate of my first from another blog I got rid of). I'll post pics and tell you dirty secrets about how I made 'em... Hope you enjoy.
Here's my first blog pic. It's a sketch I did based on the Feb 2006 issue of SISTER 2 sister magazine. www.s2smagazine.com
It's Letoya, one of the original members of Destiny's Child.
I took some liberties with her eyes (simplified and enlarged them and made them more almond shaped). Not that her eyes aren't lovely. It was just a stylization thing.
"Dirty Secret" I had to repo her eyes in Photoshop because I drew them too low originally. They're still a bit wonky but I think they're okay.
I've been told by more than one great artist that you should fix your errors in the actual drawing. It helps you learn and grow. I believe that and try to apply it whenever possible. But time is money and Prismacolor pencils aren't always the easiest to erase. Still I may give it another go now that I have a scan of the original...
Hope y'all like it. Let me know either way...
